My 11 year old son was so excited to be getting his Omnipod (first pump). We completed all the necessary paperwork and basic training, got the pump and supplies, got ready for the final training with his new pump only to find out the day before that he no longer qualified for this pump due to him not requiring any basal insulin (his need for Lantus had ended since starting the pump application process and this bit of information slipped through the cracks). He was devastated (he REALLY wanted that pump!) but the good news is that he started Lantus again (per his endo) at 3 Units and this seems to be working well as long as we keep his insulin:carb ratio at 1:30. His total insulin requirement (including both slow and fast acting) is between 10-12 U per day. I would be really interested to hear from any one whose child uses the Omnipod at the lowest basal rate and whether this is manageable, especially is they have a pretty low insulin:carb ratio. He's been stable at these levels now for a few weeks and so we should hopefully be meeting his endo soon to get approval (again). Thanks!
